Dell Vostro 15-3549

The Dell Vostro 15 is first and foremost a business laptop and is therefore designed to suit the working executive rather than the avid gamer or movie fan. The overall built looks very serious with a black plastic exterior that may look unattractive to some but the outer texture allows users to have a firm grip, making it extremely good for carrying about. The display is about 15.6 inch and features a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, which give about 100 ppi. The HD resolution screen comes with an anti-glare layer so you can work in bright natural light without worrying too much about visibility. Here the processor provided in an Intel Core i5 5200U of the 5th generation with a clock rate of up to 1.5 GHz and 2 MB cache. There is 4 GB of RAM, but this can be expanded up to 8 GB as there are two RAM slots. The internal hard disk has a capacity of 500 GB, spins at 5400 rpm and features 3 GB/s SATA interface. There is an Intel HD Graphics processor. Since this laptop is not targeted at gamers or movie enthusiasts, there is no dedicated graphics card. The OS is one of the surprises here, as it runs on a Linux x Ubuntu system.

80% Dell Vostro 15 3549 Laptop Review
Source: Kitguru English
Thanks to the ultra low power Core i5-5200U, processing power for the laptop is not bad at all. General tasks – how the laptop would be used by business users – are no problem at all, while I found the Vostro 3549 could even stretch to some image editing. Nothing heavy, but it could be useful for some customers or businesses. As for games and graphical power, the integrated HD 5500 chip is obviously not going to run The Witcher 3, for instance. Tomb Raider averaged 30.1fps though at low image quality settings, so light gaming is more-or-less OK. If you are looking for a simple laptop which can accomplish everyday tasks at a canter, while handling some light gaming and image editing, this could be it. There are no major drawbacks, and I’d say it is an effective solution at a reasonable price.

Dell Vostro 15-5568

The Vostro series has come a long way as a trusted name for laptops built for professionals and businesses in view. The latest Vostro 15 continues to impress as it is revamped as a slimmer and lighter machine yet without conceding on its substance. Built-wise, the laptop’s construction is solid with a polished finish as it is mainly built with aluminium components. Users have a choice of colours on its interior i.e. gold (Jingle) or silver (Era). Its dimensions measure 19.2 x 380 x 252.5 mm and it weighs merely 1.98 kg. For a laptop in the 15-inch category, it's weight is not all that bad but it could be better. Ports are strategically located on both sides; thus leaving the rear of the laptop neat and clutter-free. Carrying around this laptop is convenient and it will surely turn heads with its polished aluminium finish. Its business look is typical for most Vostro series. Performance-wise, it is powered by an Intel Core i7-7500U Kaby-Lake processor and can be coupled with an NVIDIA M940MX GPU. This interesting combination renders the Vostro in some ways bearing the characteristics of a multimedia laptop. Running demanding software and multi-tasking on this processor is a non-issue. In fact, it will even run games at medium to low settings if needed. Its 15.6-inch display with an aspect ratio of 16: 9 and a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixel is incredibly appealing. It is nice that the hinge allows the screen to bend back a full 180 degrees. RAM options are 8 GB of DDR4 RAM (max. 32GB) and storage is available at a 256 GB SSD. Network connectivity is supported by Wireless-AC 3165 and Bluetooth 4.1. The sound quality of the Vostro 15 is rather poor due to the speakers which are placed in an odd location. This has been a problem for many Vostros before this too. Connectivity is aplenty on this machine as it comes equipped with all necessary ports for input and output. For maximum security, a fast touch fingerprint scanner is integrated on board. The 42-Wh battery included is equally powerful considering that it is a business notebook and its runtime remains remarkable thanks to its efficient hardware, most noticeably the Kaby-Lake processor. Certainly, professionals and enterprises will benefit from this as they are power users who require longer productivity. The precision touchpad with multi-touch control is wide and sensitive. The keyboard bundled together is spill resistant and illuminated for use under dim environments. It comes pre-installed with Windows 10 Pro. Living up to the Vostro brand name, this machine is a business notebook standing out among its rivals. Hands-On-Artikel von Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Elegant business beginner. The Dell Vostro is an inexpensive 15-inch laptop for smaller companies and covers all the essentials. It is also wrapped up in a nicely designed chassis. You will have to make some compromises, but we cannot find any serious issues.

81.4% Dell Vostro 15 3568 (7200U, 256GB) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Blue, blue, blue are all my colors. It is not just because of its extreme blue tint that the display is not one of the highlights of the affordable 15-inch office notebook from Dell. Otherwise, the laptop is quite suited for its envisioned use in a small business with its workable input devices, TPM chip, Windows 10 Pro, and an optional SSD.

New assets, old shortcomings. We already announced in January that Dell was planning to offer the Vostro 15 5568 with other processors and a dedicated graphics solution. This configuration is now available and we are going to test what this entry-level business laptop with an Intel Core i7-7500U CPU and an Nvidia GeForce 940MX can offer.

Comment

Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products. Based in Texas, Dell employs more than 82,700 people worldwide (2009). In 2006, Dell purchased the computer hardware manufacturer Alienware. In most countries, the laptops are directly sold to consumers by Dell and each notebook custom-assembled according to a selection of options. In 2014, the global market share of Dell laptops was 12.3% and it is 14% in 2016.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 5500: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in the Core processors of the Broadwell U-series (15 W TDP). Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series).Intel HD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2) found on some Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series).NVIDIA GeForce 940MX: Mid-range laptop graphics card based on the Maxwell architecture. Compared to the older 940M, the MX now also supports GDDR5 graphics memory and maybe slightly faster clock speeds.NVIDIA GeForce MX130: Mid-range graphics card for mobiles based on the Maxwell architecture. Renamed GeForce 940MX.Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i5:

5200U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.6200U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.7200U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.5 to 3.1 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.8265U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.9 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.
» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

1.872 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

2.4 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


78.25%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.» Further information can be found in our Notebook Purchase Guide.
